9 Alternative Christmas Songs You Should Listen To This Month

December 15, 2015

Look, I know Elvis wasn't an Alternative artist, but I like that photo so we're keeping it. And his Christmas albums happen to be the best, so you should listen to him once you're done with this list. Speaking of, this list of 9 is a collection of my absolute favorite Christmas songs from Alt artists! I feel like there has to be atleast one Hanukkah song that I love, too... but I couldn't think of any. Which is terrible. So, if you know of any awesome alternative Hanukkah songs, let me know! (Please - no Adam Sandler) In the meantime, I've got Christmas covered. Check it out.

1. The Killers - Don't Shoot Me Santa

2. No Doubt - Oi To The World

3. Julian Casablancas - I Wish It Was Christmas Today

4. Fiona Apple - Frosty, The Snowman

5. U2 - Christmas(Baby Please Come Home)

6. Death Cab For Cutie - Christmas(Baby Please Come Home)*

7. The Shins - Wonderful Christmastime

8. The Head & The Heart - What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

9. Jimmy Eat World - Last Christmas

*U2's version of this song is way better and I just needed to make sure that was known. It's a classic!
